Long before Xena, long before Buffy, there was Annie Oakley, TV’s first female action hero. In 81 episodes made between 1954 to 1957, the TV series starring Gail Davis stood in stark contrast both all other contemporary Westerns, all of which starred men, while all other shows with female leads had none who were especially heroic. The show’s Annie Oakley was based only very loosely on the real life Annie Oakley, an Easterner who grew up outside of Cincinnati whose prowess with a rifle gained her a spot as the star performer with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.
The TV Series episodes are tales of the famous sharpshooter in her home town of Diablo, where she lives with her younger brother, Tagg. Her uncle Luke MacTavish is the town sheriff, but he is never seen. All the work is done by his deputy, Annie’s friend Lofty Craig. Annie’s horse was named Target, Tagg’s Pixie, and Lofty’s Forest.
